    DescriptionMoe, in rural Victoria, was home to a poverty-ravaged underclass who became the targets of a media circus when the disappearance of the toddler was made public. Amidst the frenzy of headlines and tabloid hype, Jaidyn was forgotten, and no one has ever been brought to justice for his death. Now years later – the major characters involved come together: former lead detective Rowland Legg, veteran crime reporter Keith Moor, historian Dr. Elise Rosser – joined by former Supreme Court judge, the Honourable Anthony Whealy QC.
